Race Buddy Fieke Reijntjes

I started triathlon 2 years ago when I moved from the Netherlands to the UK. I thought the best way to get into it was going long. The first ever triathlon race I signed up to was the IM Austria in 2015. I joined the Hoddesdon Triathlon Club and have done Sprints, Olympics and Middle Distance races, Aquathlons, XC’s, TT’s and all the other fun stuff since and can say; I’m hooked! I excel on the bike, do reasonably well on the swim and every run is a challenge ;-).

 

Apart from Triathlon in enjoy outdoor sports like climbing, skiing but my main passion is Rafting. I  am lucky to have seen the world taking part in Rafting competitions with (previously) the Dutch and GB women's rafting team.

 

Apart from taking part in competitions I enjoy helping others to get better. I enjoy coaching the GB youth Rafting squads and at the Hoddesdon triathlon club. I love taking people on an adventure by making them try new (outdoor) sports and activities during the many outdoor instructor jobs I had.  

 

At Race Force I am looking forward to start a challenge with everyone who would like to excel in their triathlon. To share my knowledge and create the perfect conditions to enjoy and race hard on the day it counts!
